Just wondering if anyone does this. I recently got a JB-4 doser and was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to go about mixing my dry ferts into solutions. Can I mix KNO3, KH2PO4, K2SO4, and CSMB micro mix all into one solution? Thank you all in advance for any help!

I'm not too familiar with your doser, but as it appears to be a peristaltic pump, I assume you can control how much liquid is dosed.

There are various calculators that you can find to make up stock solutions; do note that there is usually an upper limit on solubility (the calculators will warn you when you are reaching this limit).

For mixing, the macronutrients can be mixed together, but the micronutrients should be by themselves. This is because of the potential for iron phosphate to precipitate out when the trace mix is mixed with the potassium phosphate.
